My Story

I own Janet Roche Designs, LLC., which specializes in universal design, and the design of environments for those who are aging in place (AIP) or seeking accommodations for other human conditions such as physical, psychological, or cognitive differences.  My company believes that they can find real design solutions to the human condition. In 2019, I launched my own podcast, Inclusive Designers™ (IDP) where I am a host, co-producer, and writer. As I am a longtime advocate for dignity in design, IDP is a collaborative forum for designers to share creative ideas for different human conditions for inclusivity, equality, and diversity.

In addition to my Masters in Design for Human Health from BAC, I hold a B.S. in Social Work from Boston University and a Certificate of Business and Management from Harvard University Extension School.  In 2011, I was named Woman of the Year by the National Association of Professional Women. I sit on a variety of boards and committees. I am active in my hometown of Boston, am a Red Sox fan, and in the winter you can find my on the slopes of Killington, Vermont where I am a volunteer ski instructor for Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports and Professional Ski Instructors Association (PSIA).


I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
